I will be taking my two children on a very long trip this month and my youngest is NOT fully potty trained so I wanted to make a Diaper Clutch but I just wanted it to be simple and I could not find a decent tutorial for a beginner sewer like myself to understand so I decided to make a pattern myself and post the tutorial for the one I created for everyone to see!!!*click to enlarge pictures*
You will need:
fabric(I used flannel)
Diaper Clutch Tutorial:
1.Cut two pieces of fabric 26"x13"
2.Take the two rectangles and place them right sides together and pin.
3.Sew the two sides using a 1/4" seam allowance.
4.Cut extra and flip right side out and iron.
5.Take the raw edges on ends and fold inward to create a hem then iron flat.
6.Now pin all four sides and sew all around the entire rectangle *like shown in the picture*
(A helpful hint for getting straight lines is to use a pencil and mark the inside and use as guide when sewing the best part is no one will see it!*
7.Measure 5 1/2" on both ends inward to create the pockets to hold the diapers and wipes * the 5 1/2" mark will be where your pocket creases*
8.Pin pockets just folded and sew the pockets sides closed *use the picture below for reference and simply sew on top of stitch already created or whip stitch the sides shut*
THAT IS IT! Fill it with diapers and wipes and enjoy.
